The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Miklós Kocsár’s career reflects his vibrant, multifaceted and open-minded personality. He began music studies in the city of his birth, Debrecen. He proved to be a superb pianist; the Debrecen Csokonai Theatre employed him as a pianist and accordionist the year he left school. He then started playing clarinet and trombone in Zenede, Debrecen, where he became interested in jazz and also studied composition. His teachers at the Liszt Academy include such luminaries of Hungarian music as Ferenc Farkas, Lajos Bárdos, Pál Járdányi and András Szöllősy. Having completed his studies, Kocsár worked as editor with Zeneműkiadó publishing house, between 1963 and 1972 he was music director and conductor of the Madách Theatre, and from 1972 he taught composition at the Bartók Music Secondary School. Mirroring his myriad activities, his oeuvre is also extremely diverse: he has written for full orchestra, chamber orchestra and solo instruments, in addition to which he has several important vocal works to his name; indeed, his international reputation was built on the song cycle for Garcia Lorca poems, which debuted at the Warsaw music festival in 1968. Kocsár is a double Erkel Prize winner, he has also won the Bartók–Pásztory Prize, a Kossuth Prize, and the Order of the Cross of the Republic of Hungary. In 1992 he was a founding member of the Hungarian Academy of Arts and has been a full member since 2011. The Liszt Academy pays tribute to the 85-year-old master with this commemorative concert.
